The teetotaler's lament

I am willing to admit to this fact, sometimes I miss drinking.  I am not an alcoholic, I do not need to drink but I miss it in the social setting.  As a comedian part of and sometimes the only payment is a free drink or two from the bar.  My free drinks are soda which comes out to about a dollar each.  So essentially I get paid $4 for that show.

I am not complaining I did not get into comedy for the money, but sometimes I miss my old favorite a Jack and Diet Coke, ka-ching.  No one expects me to drink nor do they offer but it feels like I am missing out on something, like some potential embarrassing story and pictures that will end up on TMZ after my inevitable fame.

I was talking to a friend yesterday about how fun she probably is drunk and how I wish I could get wasted and/or arrested with her.  I mean nothing serious just a misdemeanor that we can look back at in our 70s and have a good laugh at.  I know I CAN drink I just choose not to.

I do not know how rock star diabetics do it.  I mean unskinny bop op.*
